  Original Published: 10/29/2013 Millions of Americans who rely on food stamps will soon see a change in benefits. Starting this Friday, food stamp benefits will be cut. More than 47-million people currently receive food stamps. That's about 15-percent of the U.S. population, up from 8.7-percent in 2007. The average benefit per person is now about $133 a month. That amount will be reduced. All total, the cuts add up to $5-billion. Congress can halt the decision but it's unlikely.
